It is not often that a Ranger sees the process through from creating a bird box with the public all the way through to it being put on a tree and hopefully in use!
In May 2016 the Community Greenspace Ranger in the Highland area supported the Cairngorm Park Nature Festival weekend by running a bird box building session. These bird boxes were then installed by the Scouts from all over Europe during the Scout Jamboree hosted by Atholl Estates. It is hoped that those that created the boxes will easily recognise their boxes whilst using the paths around Blair Atholl! It would be great to hear if the boxes are being used.
